The CMTS you connect to was probably replaced with a newer one. The old ones suppressed packets like ARP (which can apparently cause the flashing traffic light.) But the new CMTS models do not suppress that kind of traffic.

On my Superhub 2 I have the traffic led covered over with a bit of black masking tape as it got a bit tedious seeing it blink 24/7.
